Mykonos International Airport[citation needed] (IATA: JMKICAO: LGMK) is an airport in Mykonos, Greece, located 4 kilometers from the town of Mykonos.

History[edit]

The airport first operated in 1971.[3]

During the off-peak tourist season the airport has limited flight connections and operating hours. On the other hand, during the 2014 peak summer season it was found necessary to severely limit general aviation activity, allowing only a technical stop of 2 hours.[4] For the summer of 2016, NOTAM B0335/16 introduces a similar limitation, but now even down to a one hour's stop.

In December 2015 the privatisation of Mykonos International Airport and 13 other regional airports of Greece was finalised with the signing of the agreement between the Fraport AG/Copelouzos Group joint venture and the state privatisation fund.[5] "We signed the deal today," the head of Greece's privatisation agency HRADF, Stergios Pitsiorlas, told Reuters.[6] According to the agreement, the joint venture will operate the 14 airports (including Mykonos International Airport) for 40 years.

Fraport started managing the airport from 11th April 2017.[7]

Future of Mykonos International Airport - Fraport Greece’s investment plan[edit]

On 22 March 2017, the Fraport-Greece presented its master plan for the 14 regional airports including the Mykonos International Airport.[8]

Immediate actions that will be implemented at the airports as soon as Fraport Greece takes over operations before the launch of the summer season 2017 include: :

  • General clean-up
  • Improving lighting, marking of airside areas.
  • Upgrading sanitary facilities
  • Enhancing services and offering new free Internet connection (WiFi)
  • Implementing works to improve fire safety in all the areas of the airports

The following summarizes the enhancement changes that will be implemented for Mykonos International Airport under Fraport Greece’s investment plan until 2021 :

  • Expanding and remodeling the terminal – 50 percent increase in the total size of the terminal at 13,350 m2, with the construction of a new terminal area
  • New fire station
  • Reorganizing apron
  • 13 percent increase in the number of check-in counters (from 12 to 16)
  • 17 percent increase in the number of departure gates (from 6 to 7)
